Wow, it's been a while, but I'm happy to be back in the clinic, seeing my patients again ❀️

Thank you to everyone who has sent me emails of support during this time. To those of you who have been patient and kind, I know it hasn't been easy. I appreciate all of you so much.

If you are in need of some help ***cough**from shoveling snow this morning**cough***🌨️, and of course help with any other issues you're experiencing... I've got you!

Help OMTs get back to work by signing this petition! OMTs have been caught in a grey zone as they are unregulated by the government and have thus been deemed unessential in Ontario during the current lockdown. This is truly unfortunate for all the patients that rely on Osteopathic care daily. Let's band together and have Ontario recognize the importance of deeming Osteopathy as essential.

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners in Ontario Should Be Considered an Essential Service!

I knew I liked this patient when I met them. A mutual love for chocolate haha.

Maybe I'll use that as a marketing strategy... "have you always wanted to shove a handful of chocolate chips in your mouth, but can't because of your sore jaw and trouble opening your mouth?"

Wow, October has seriously gotten away from me! And it's been a long time since I've shown my face on here so I thought I'd say HI πŸ‘‹πŸ» and share some updates!

Some things have changed! I mean it's 2020 so does that really surprise you? Lol

At the beginning of October I changed clinic locations and started working with Vitality Physio downtown Dundas! (still working in Cambridge as well)

So if you're looking for me, you can find me at 37 Hatt St. πŸŽ‰

At the same time (actually almost on the exact same day), I moved into a new apartment 🚚... It's been quite the month!

I am now a plant mom to about 10 new plants πŸ€“πŸŒ±

And also exciting... I got a new website up and running! You can check me out at reviveosteopathy.ca πŸ‘ˆπŸ»

I hope you've all been doing super well during this time!

Keep your head up (because it's better for your neck πŸ˜†) & I hope to see you around!

Congrats Darren! πŸŽ‰πŸ‘

Check out this incredible feat πŸ’ͺ After battling GBS and being paralyzed from the waist down, Darren completed his second ultramarathon on the weekend, and his first 60k distance!

Huge Congrats to Coach D! πŸ’₯

@darren44brooks ran 60k on Saturday to raise money for The GBS Foundation and absolutely crushed it! He’s already raised $2500 and there is still time to donate. So head to the link in our bio to help support if you can πŸ™πŸΌ

As if 60k isn’t impressive enough, Darren also added 2 climbs up Sydenham Hill, 1 climb up Wilson Street Hill, and an 11k race with @rundundas through the Dundas Conservation area to add an extra challenge.

D, we’re so impressed, inspired and blown away by everything you do for Momentum and our community. Way to go!

A special thanks to everyone who helped cheer and support him along the way πŸ™πŸΌπŸ‘πŸ‘

Well given the current circumstances I am unable to provide Osteopathic Treatment, however, I can still assist you in helping you understand your body better and working through things in a safer way that is tailored to your needs! This also helps keep you accountable to your own health and healing πŸ™ŒπŸ» If this sounds like something you are interested in, please shoot me a DM or email me!

I look forward to helping you! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’›

It is with a heavy heart that I'm announcing the temporary postponement of treatments.

I believe right now it is imperative that we put the state of the world first, and that we all do our part to care for one another.

I will be updating everyone as I learn more, and as soon as we're given the green light to resume I will be sending out emails!

In the meantime, take this as a chance to reconnect with people and things you love. Find ways to be creative, learn something new & don't forget to care for yourself 🀍

We've got this πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

We carry the weight of the world on our shoulders, but that world can get heavy sometimes. Wearing away at us, taking our energy and holding us so tight that we forget we can step out from under it. Taking that time for yourself, removing yourself from those stressful situations is extremely therapeutic & will help is all aspects of your life.

Let this be a safe space, a space to come & let go. You can talk if you want, or be in silence. You can laugh, cry, let it out anyway you need. Or just rest. Allow yourself to just be as you want to be, feel what you need to feel, with no judgement or noise from the outside world.
This space is for you, here for you & made for you.

We’re not just muscles and bones. Listening to ourselves, letting go and quieting the mind is equally as important in healing the physical body πŸ™πŸ»πŸ€

We've finally got that Canadian winter ❄️ And it's cold, but the sun is out so I'm out too!

Exposure of sunlight to the eyes triggers the release of serotonin which helps regulate mood, social behaviour, appetite, digestion, sleep, sexual desire & function πŸ‘€ No wonder we feel better when we go outside! It's involved in our overall daily functioning.

Bundle up & enjoy the day leading into the weekend! 🌞

Be sure to check out this workshop if you want to learn how to use kettlebells!

I love this piece of equipment, it's extremely versatile, you can use them in so many different ways, there are some incredible benefits to incorporating them into your workout routine!

Workshop Alert! 🚨

The kettlebell master himself, Darren will be hosting a Kettlebell Workshop on Sunday March 8th and Sunday March 22nd at 2pm!

Kettlebell training is a fun and challenging way to work on muscular endurance, grip strength, explosiveness, and joint stability. And they are excellent tools to add into a HIIT Circuit or any general workout routine! βš’οΈ πŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈ

Kettlebells can look intimidating, so this workshop is the perfect way to get comfortable and confident by learning the exercise technique safely.

Space for each one is limited! Get it now! πŸ”₯

It took a while to dig these out!
But in celebration of National Girls & Women in Sport Day I thought I'd find some oldies (sorry in advance about the quality) & share a little more about myself with those of you who may not have known me for too long!

πŸ₯ŽπŸ€πŸπŸˆπŸ₯πŸ₯Š

Sports mean so much to me. I grew up playing everything I could make time for & I loved it all. I spent hours on end practicing with my dad, my teammates, on my own, one-on-one with coaches. I traveled far out of town to train with other teams. It was my life and I am so grateful I had those opportunities & experiences.

Playing sports, both team & individual, teaches you so much, helps build foundational skills and more importantly introduces you to some incredible people who will have a lasting impact on you.

I may be a retired athlete now but I still apply the same principles I've learned to other aspects of my life.

I continue to stay active, try new things (all the time), and sports are in part why I got into Osteopathy. I hope to provide care to my patients that allows them to continue staying active in their lives, and allows them to do the things they love most!

My laundry list is long, but here are just a few of the sports and some of my favourite photos from the years ❀️

I love the sound of that crunch! Not letting a little bit of snow get in the way of my trail run❄️

As much as it may seem more difficult with less solid ground to dig into, and a more slippery surface at points.. Running in the snow can force your body to:

➑️ Develop more stability & strength in the joints as it adapts to unique terrain
➑️ & work harder as the snow increases the overall difficulty of your run, making you engage muscles differently

On top of that, the snow provides a softer surface to run on which is easier on your joints, & spending time outdoors is great for improving your mood, sleep & immune system 🌞

It's a good idea to work on overall mobility prior to running to avoid injury. But if you're feeling like you're ready to try, don't let the winter stop you!

β–ͺ️Be sure to start slow
β–ͺ️Dress warm & wear socks that cover your ankles
β–ͺ️Shorten your stride to reduce risk of falling
β–ͺ️Walk on the icy parts
β–ͺ️When going downhill, change the angle of your feet from side to side to slow yourself down, gain traction & maintain control
β–ͺ️And use it as an opportunity to get out & enjoy the day!

Bread or Fascia? πŸ€”πŸžπŸ₯©

I mean both are technically supporting the overall structure.
Both respond to and distribute forces as a whole.
Just as bread has different structural parts that all came from the same mixture, so does the body...

But one definitely works better as a sandwich holder than the other πŸ€“πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is the thorough assessment and gentle manual adjustment of the body to help remove obstruction to nerves, arteries, veins & lymphatics, promote stabilization & balance between the external framework & internal environment, to facilitate proper healing of all parts.

It is based on the founding principles that the body is a unit, it is self-healing and self-regulating, that structure and function are reciprocally interrelated, and treatment is based on this knowledge.

Treatment administered is unique to each patient, and differs each time they walk through the door. This is because we are dynamic beings and our bodies are constantly changing with our activities of daily living, habits, environment, traumas etc.

Osteopathy can assist in a wide variety of issues, as we are always looking for the root cause of the problem via connections between the anatomy, physiology and mechanics.
